THE POSTULANCY                            

Time of discovery and gradual acquaintance!


The journey is made up of different stages!

The first one is the postulancy.

It`s the time of discovering:    community life, its joys and its limits …   



It`s the time to deepen christian life, to listen to the Word of God and to pray both alone and with the community!

It`s the time to get acquainted with the founders, Jeanne-Antide and Vincent de Paul and to deepen her personal vocation.  .   

During her year as a postulant, the young woman continues her activities and her work. It`s her first mission place which she discovers as a privileged occasion to serve the poor.    

It`s the time of gradual acquaintance!  Without assuming any commitment, the postulant becomes acquainted with   internal reality of the community   and asks questions. With the help of a priest or a religious, she reads her experience and her progress.   

At the end of one or two years, she will decide whether this experience is inviting her to go further and to enter the Congregation by a more formal act: entering the novitiate.
